I've missed out on Citizenship! :(

    Last week I nipped into Immi on Curry St and picked up my booklet to have a good read, ready to sit my test.

    Confident in my knowledge, I phoned Immi today to arrange an appointment and was told that I will have to wait another year before I can apply!!!!

     

    I have missed out by 1 week!!! Arghhhhh

     

    The new rule about being here 4 years before sitting the test, gave people like myself (who have been here 3 years and when entered the country the law was only 2 years before you could take it) a grace period until June 30th 2010 to take the test.

     

    I'm pretty gutted as Ian has done his and I wanted to go to the ceremony as a family.

     

    Oh well, should have done it sooner!!!!:arghh:
